Using BibTeX exports in a LaTeX document

BibTeX is reference management software for formatting lists of references. The BibTeX tool is typically used together with the LaTeX document preparation system. The purpose of BibTeX is to make it easy to cite sources in a consistent manner, by separating bibliographic information from the presentation of this information, similarly to the separation of content and presentation/style supported by LaTeX itself.

LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system; it includes features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation.  LaTeX is the de facto standard for the communication and publication of scientific documents.

How to Use

When using BibTeX files exported from The Lens in a LaTeX document, we recommend that you use the “url” package to ensure that encoded URLs with special characters such as “%” in them are rendered correctly.

To do so, add: \usepackage{url} to your document.

Additionally, we recommend adding \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} to your document so that URLs containing underscore characters (_) can be copy-pasted out of your document.
